Planning letters written July-Dec 2015

Jan 2017

Report on the letters the group has written to Guildford Borough Council about planning applications submitted during the period

1 July to 31 December 2015


During 2015 the Planning Group has consisted of John Baylis, Gordon Bridger, Amanda Mullarkey, David Ogilvie, Martin Taplin, Anthony Umney and John Wood.  Ian Macpherson has been invaluable as a corresponding member.


The Planning Group has continued to meet every three weeks at the Guildford Borough Council (“GBC”) offices.  


During the last six months of 2015 there were 1,351 planning applications recorded at GBC, which was 152 applications more than the preceding six months.  We sifted through these applications and looked in detail at 75 of them over this period.  The Group wrote 30 letters to the Head of Planning Services on a wide range of individual planning applications.  We looked at 12 less applications than we did during the first half of 2015, yet we wrote one more letter than we did in the previous six months.
